Summer Weather

1:34 - Hail....loud crashing thunder (with what seems like cymbals in the echo), rain (much of it coming down at a steep angle), wind, intermittent sun, and now hail again - grape sized at least.

The Newington Fire Department drove by - three trucks at least - a few minutes ago.

Nice weather we got here. I'm glad to be inside.....just hoping the power stays on....

2:34 Edit: An hour later, it's still raining torrentially out there. Apparently, the thunderstorms are moving very slowly, 3-4 MPH, and so taking their time moving on. Throughout this weather event, I can spot blue sky, looking eastward from my office. Incredible.....

2:55 Edit: Still coming down, hard. We had a small break there, looked like it might blow over, but its back to a downpour. And much darker now, with no blue sky to be seen....

There was a TORNADO warning for west-central Massachusetts (Amherst and environs) today.
